The Manufacture of Illuminating Gas

The first franchise in America to produce and distribute gas for public use was granted in 1816 by this city to the Baltimore Gas Light Company, established by Rembradnt Peale, William Lorman, James Mosher, Robert Cary Long and William Gwynn. In exercise of this franchise, gas has been supplied uninterruptedly by the original company and its successors.

This tablet is erected on the premises
of the direct descendant of the pioneer company.
